Some general remarks
I have been teaching and researching in physics since completing my D.Phil. in Oxford many years ago.
My research interests spread over a range of areas, but the common theme is elucidating basic principles or ideas. My main work has been in the interface of quantum physics and information science, from both a theoretical and experimental point of view. I co-discovered quantum error correction and initiated the ion trap quantum computing experiments in Oxford, which are now run by Prof David Lucas, Dr Chris Ballance and others, with some continuing contribution from me. I have also been interested in physics teaching and have written several textbooks aimed at undergraduate study, especially with a view to self-study and understanding in depth.
